Many warriors who were not in service lived in isolation, writing stories which carried within them a unique lesson and clarification from a time when Japanese nobility lived in accordance to "Bunbu Itchi" or "Pen and Sword in Accord".Told in an age-old tradition, along with illustrations done exclusively for each story, this book offers a unique insight into the understanding, culture, lives, and ways of the warriors who followed the old way of Japan. Every story carries within it a moral lesson, depicted by characters or events that either exemplify a great virtue or vice.
